The next time a man starts yelling at you, cut him off and tell him you just can’t talk to him when he’s being so emotional.
in the meantime, if we were allowed to see more representations of people with different disabilities in film, tv, pop culture and real life, that fear & loathing would dissipate, and we’d start to see disabilities as a normal part of life.
I was watching Just Married with this guy once and at that bit on the wedding night when Ashton Kutcher lays his head on Brittany Murphy’s chest to sleep he was like ‘isn’t that the wrong way round? girls are supposed to sleep on the guy’s chest’ and that’s why straight people are weird.
A couple I know were having trouble holding hands because the boy was insisting that his hand was supposed to go in front

We also need to teach children that they have a right to say no, and that their bodies are their own. Because that’s where it starts: kids are taught that they don’t have any right to personal boundaries, and they carry that with them all their lives. Is it any wonder that their sense of boundaries as adults is completely fucked up?
